Popular vegan kebab shop What The Pitta! has just been shortlisted in the prestigious British Kebab Awards.


There’s no denying that the public’s opinion of vegan food has come a long way in recent years.

Last year we saw a vegan pie scooping the top prize at the British Pie Awards for the first time ever and vegan pizzeria Purezza taking home the top prize at the National Pizza Awards after becoming the first vegan pizzeria to be nominated for an award.

Joining the likes of Purezza to be nominated as a vegan business for a typically non-vegan award, vegan kebab shop What The Pitta! has just been shortlisted in the prestigious British Kebab Awards in the Best Takeaway in London category.

The company opened the UK’s first entirely meat-free kebab restaurant in Boxpark Croydon in 2017 and now boasts four locations in London, Brighton and Croydon.

What the Pitta’s unique kebabs use non-GMO soya chunks, marinated in a blend of Middle Eastern spices and grilled for a smoky kebab flavour, providing the perfect healthy, guilt-free meal. The bread is handmade on site in front of customers, and filled with homemade hummus, tzatziki, fresh salads and now the famous seasoned soya.

Speaking to Plant Based News, Cem Yildiz, What The Pitta co-founder, said: “Having our vegan kebabs win Best Takeaway in London would be a huge statement for veganism but also tempt meat-eaters to give it a go!”
